If you’re visiting the land down under for business or pleasure, it’s a mammoth journey from anywhere in Europe. Being comfortable and well looked after on your flight can be a priority, especially if you want to arrive rested and ready for action.
There are various airlines who know the importance of customer service and comfort on such a long haul journey, including Korean Air, British Airways, Etihad, KLM, Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa and China Airlines.
However, if you truly want to travel to Australia in style, and make the flight part of the holiday, then the best airlines to choose are Qatar, Emirates and Singapore.
What makes these options the best way to fly business class to Australia?
One of the reasons Qatar Airways soars high above the competition for flights to Australia is that its business class seat layout is innovative, enabling travellers to enjoy plenty of space but also aisle access for all, including those next to the window. The in-seat services are excellent, including great storage, privacy and lighting adjusted to help acclimatise you to different time zones. There are 4,000 entertainment options, and some aircraft in the fleet also offer dual-screen services for multi tasking in flight.
It’s no surprise that Qatar has been named as the best airline in the world numerous times in the past few years. In 2018 it achieved the accolade of best business class airline and also won the 2019 Skytrax World Airline and TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards.
Qatar Airways also has award winning chefs to prepare its renowned in-flight cuisine.
Sometimes the defining factor is when an airline goes “above and beyond” and that can be evidenced by the extra touches Qatar offers. On your flight to Australia, you could be enjoying complimentary 100% cotton pyjamas and slippers (from The White Company) and pampering yourself with an amenity bags that includes facial mist, lip balm, and age-defying moisturiser from Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio.
Qatar Airways stopovers on the way to Australia take place at Doha, where you have the option to take in a mini-break to embark on a desert safari or relax at the beach as part of your Australian business travel or holiday.
Luxury travel is the hallmark of Emirates, which is relatively new in terms of airlines but has come into the market with a truly contemporary and “cutting edge” standard of business class services.
Relax back into your ergonomically perfect lie-flat seat, to enjoy a crystal clear 58cm entertainment screen, showing an incredible 2,000 channels, breaking news and all the latest movies. Enjoy your personal mini-bar, then sample wines chosen by a sommelier with your gourmet in-flight cuisine served on bone china.
If you fancy stretching your legs mid-flight to Australia, the Emirates A380 offers an onboard lounge for first and business class passengers, a well-designed area serving coffee, cake, canapés and cocktails.
Your in-flight designer amenity bag is likely to include skincare items and lovely fragrances amongst the many pamper products, as Emirates strives to offer the most luxurious free items among all airlines.
The added extras don’t come more special than theirs either – including the option of a complimentary personal airport transfer service.
Dubai is the stopover destination for Emirates, and should you choose to add a night’s layover you can take advantage of that chauffeur to your hotel of choice. Or, enjoy a gold standard of service and refreshment in the Emirates Business Class lounge in Dubai.
Singapore Airlines is another consistent front runner for the accolade of best business class travel in general, which can make your holidays or corporate travel to Australia much more pleasurable.
The superb customer service they strive to achieve starts the minute you arrive at the airport, as with Singapore Airlines you can expect fast-track, preferential treatment as well as access to high calibre airport lounges.
Nor surprisingly, you will change flights on the way to Australia at Singapore airport, where you can add in a range of beguiling stopover holiday breaks, that are inclusive of luxury hotel accommodation. Not that you need to leave Changi airport to enjoy your time in Singapore, as its reputation for being the world’s best airport is based on having such features as a swimming pool, cinema, quiet sleeping areas, a beauty and reflexology centre, children’s play area, nature trail and market food stalls!
Once on board your business class flight to Australia, the word that comes to mind is “elegance”. From its handcrafted leather aeroplane “loungers” offering sumptuous space and comfort, to its thoughtful extra touches such as cosy slippers and eye-shades.
Singapore business class travel enables you to “book the cook” from the company’s international panel of in-flight cuisine experts too. You choose from a mouthwatering menu before you fly, to be sure of getting your meal perfectly matched to your preferences.
Amenity kits on trips to Australia with Singapore airlines include lots of lovely goodies from Penhaligon’s.
